Great course, dry where everywhere else is wet.

Really fun and challenging course. Especially with wind off the sea. Some delightful holes and then some that just seem fit in. Staff very friendly, but no beers available at half way hut. Overall a nice challenge and great place to play when everywhere else is wet.

Slow play but great day

4hours and 45minutes to play a round of golf is a little too long for me, especially as a 2 ball, however the weather was beautiful, the course in good shape and the views simply stunning. As with the pace of play, the greens could do with a bit of a hurry up too, had to give the ball quite a rap to reach the hole…
All in all though a very enjoyable day out, oh and the 19th serve a close to perfect ping of Harvey’s

Windy weather
Walked

Breezy Day

A round here on a windy day makes the course challenging whilst helping on some fairly lengthy holes on the back nine. Judging the wind is essential.

Greens in very good condition and the fairways lush after all the rain.

Pro very friendly as always and the lady behind the bar ultra efficient.

Over all a very good experience. We will be back!!!

Very testing when the wind picks up

Love this course as it plays in 3 different way; offshore or onshore wi d or still.. When the wind blows its a game of 2 9-holes. Easy when no wind.

November Sunday 2 ball

Easy to find (car park is a bit snug).
Wasn't windy which was a bonus and the course played fantastically well. Tees, fairways, bunkers and greens were all in great nick. Greens were lightning fast so be prepared to get your best short game out.
So many challenging holes and glorious views.
It's at times an odd layout where holes are very close together and criss cross one another, but this adds to its enjoyment.
A halfway hut with plenty of hot foot and drink options you can order on the 9th tee.
Lots of hazardous o.b and a real challenge for any golfer.
Highlight was the fascinating ww2 bomb craters that come into play as huge dells on several holes.
Lovely pint of Brixton IPA afterwards with sky sports on the bar.
Couldn't really complain

Good Course with good mix of holes

Kept in great condition, with lots of recent tidying up over Covid period, this is a great downland course, with all that goes with that e.g. wind, rolling fairways, fast run offs.

Definitely is one of my top picks of downland golf courses.

E Brighton in the rain

Fairways, greens and bunkers all in v. Good condition.

Only downside was the rain and you can't blame the course for that.

Would have rated five stars but have played there once before aug 2019 and had argument with two groups of members who had stopped for food at the halfway house and arrogantly insisted that we had to wait for them even though there is clearly a sign which says golfers not sopping for refresemts mist be invited to play thru.
No probs yesterday as the weather kept the members away.

Great course and great variety when the wind blows

Quite still this time but what wind was from the north west. Made back 6 holes fairly easy but into the wind on 2nd to 4th and 6th to 11th into the wind which include Stroke index 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8. After the rain the course grass was lush, i.e. very few bare patches and greens very true if not a little long. Average speed - stimp 8 or 9. Lovely views over Brighton and the Marina

Challenging Course

East Brighton is a challenge to golfers of all handicaps but offers a fair test.

The more you play this course the more you realise how course management is. High handicappers play to get on those par 4s in three and you will pick up points. Attack and see where you end up!

Very impressed

It was the first time I’ve played on this course, I’m from the local area and have heard good things. I’ve played lots of courses around the downs area and this was up there with the best of them. Holds a real challenge against some of the weather conditions and the layout of the course certainly keeps you on your toes! Was kept in very good condition the tee’s and fairways were immaculate, and the greens ran perfectly. Will definitely be going back

Stunning scenery and a great challenge

This course has the best collection of par 3 holes I can remember. The design varies from true links to Downland over different sections of the course and is engaging at all times. There are a couple of holes toward the end which get a bit confusing on where to play to if you’re a first timer, we actually played toward one green before realising it was the wrong one, but that’s the nature of links style set ups. A memorable round of golf.

A Challenge

A very nice course, a beautiful layout down in the valley, and then an uphill hole to the course halfway hut to refresh for beautiful scenes to bring you back in to the clubhouse! Would definitely recommend!
